Dinner at the Domaine: the perfect digestif with VSOP Cognac from Domaine de la Chauvillière
Seeking that ideal post or pre-dinner Cognac to share with friends? Experience one of Bons Bois’ finest exports - the Domaine de la Chauvillière VSOP Cognac. Harvested on the family-owned vineyard in Charente-Maritime, this Cognac offers a pleasant and smooth drinking experience to suit any and all of your guests’ tastes.
Founded in 1950 by the Hauselmann family, the Domaine de la Chauvillière does not shy away from the heritage or tradition of the Maison - this minimum 5-year-old Cognac is distilled using traditional techniques, including copper stills and oak barrel aging.
The region is known for its microclimate that produces exceptional harvests, especially with the Ugni Blanc grapes used in this Cognac - with long, dry summers and humid winters. This protection from adverse weather creates eaux-de-vie with a unique, aromatic intensity that can be used in cocktails, neat, on ice or even in high-end gastronomy.
All production processes happen on-site, from harvesting through to bottling, meaning the family has complete control over their produce. With its accessible price, this Cognac is ideal for any occasion and will undoubtedly impress drinkers with its flavor combinations and noble provenance.
When served, your guests will at first experience the subtle aromas of candied citrus fruits, followed by delicately spiced gingerbread and vanilla notes. With the first sip of this Cognac, the high quality of the eaux-de-vie fruits immediately become present, with sweet hints of marmalade, jam and prunes, with an exceptionally long finish for its age.
Served neat or on ice, this is an ideal digestif or aperitif to serve to guests at any social occasion, particularly after a cheese course.
Presentation of the Bottle
